TURKEY: GLOBAL AGENCY APPOINTS MEISEL
Global Agency has appointed veteran broadcast executive Farrell E. Meisel to the newly-created role of Director of Development.
Meisel will work for both Global Agency, and its finished programme arm World Wide Entertainment, and will focus on developing long-term partnerships and identifying new areas of growth for the two divisions. With a catalogue of more than 500 titles, Mediaset Distribution is the leading distribution company of Italian TV Programs and scripted formats.
Global Agency is one of the world’s fastest-growing formats distributors, and in mid-2012 expanded into the finished programme sector with its acquisition of the World Wide Entertainment brand.
Izzet Pinto, CEO of Global Agency, said of Meisel’s appointment: “It’s a real coup for us to have signed Farrell up. He’s got unrivalled experience of the international television landscape, and will be a huge asset both for Global Agency and World Wide Entertainment.”
